Black Tortoise Seven

ARIES: Black Tortoise Seven

There may be times this month where you find yourself up against what seems like an insurmountable obstacle that you’re going to have to use discipline, strategy and cunning to see yourself through.

This is the Feng Shui Tarot’s version of the Seven of Wands. It focuses more on the barriers that stand in your way than on the conflict and combativeness that’s usually associated with this card.

The Black Tortoise in this card gazes through the rungs of a locked gate at a mountain range in the distance. He may be longing to escape, or he may be pausing to consider more creative solutions to crossing over to the other side.

But it’s all a matter of perspective. Is he really locked out? Or is he safe in the confines of his own kingdom, protected from the turbulent storm clouds that are brewing in the distance.

The Seven of Wands requires you to look at your situation from all sides and figuring out the best course of action.

There is a “hold your ground” element to this card which is in keeping with the traditional Seven of Wands. But rather than fighting off someone trying to unseat you, you may be fighting off your own urges to see the grass as greener on the other side.

Think about what’s been obstructing you in your own quest to reach your goals. As there’s an expanse of water (emotions) between the gated ledge and the mountains across the way, there’s more than likely an emotional component at work here.

You may have to explore uncomfortable feelings or conquer hidden fears. Whatever it is, know that you do have the tools at your disposal. The Black Tortoise Seven requires you to consider solutions that might not be readily available as you plan your next move.

Today is a day for counting your blessings. It’s a day for expressing gratitude for the life you’ve created and for the loved ones and family members who’ve been such an important part of it.

It’s a day for finding your center and allowing the Universal blessings of love, gratitude, harmony and grace to flow through you.

The Ten of Cups — this version from the Anna K. Tarot — is a card of serenity, contentment and fulfillment. This ties in beautifully with today’s / Moon Venus conjunction and subsequent trine to Neptune.

Sometimes this is a marriage card, a joining together with someone else who shares your happiness. Sometimes it’s an accomplishment card — coming to a point where you’re able to count your blessings and express contentment with your present circumstances.

This extends well beyond financial or material security. It’s more about family, lasting friendships and a comfort — in your home and your community — surrounded by people you love.

You want to align yourself with a vibration of gratitude as the Ten of Cups speaks of not only getting what you’ve “asked” for (via the principles of law of attraction) but also being thankful for all that you’ve received.

This is not the time to think about what is lacking in your life but rather what makes it complete. And while you don’t want to be resting on your laurels, it’s important to acknowledge those who are most important to you and who keep your cup continuously full.

Today’s Venus / Jupiter conjunction should bring feelings of gratitude and fulfillment to the forefront for you.

This aspect — and today’s card, the Ten of Cups from the gorgeous Archeon Tarot — speaks of achieving something worth acknowledging and celebrating, as seen in the imagery of this card.

It represents fulfillment and security; a solid foundation of abundance and prosperity, and the sense that you have built something you can take pride in.

This card is all about embracing all you’ve established through your connections and interactions with those who matter most — with your family, friends and loved ones.

Today is a day for counting your blessings. It’s a day for expressing gratitude for the life you’ve created and for the loved ones and family members who’ve been such an important part of it.

The Ten of Cups — this version from Erin Morgenstern’s Phantomwise Tarot — is all about friendships and family, camaraderie and hospitality. It’s about joining together with like-minded people to create a legacy that will live on long after you’re gone.

You may be arriving at a place in your life where you can look back over the connections you’ve established and the commitments you’ve made. Relationships that have held up over the years and that promise to withstand the test of time.

The rabbits in this version of the card make up one big happy family. They’re doing what rabbits do best — multiplying — as are the books they’ve stacked up beside them and the teacups they’re filling from top to bottom. This card emphasizes the qualities of support, companionships and camaradarie that are such important features of this card.

The Ten of Cups refers to achieving something that is worth acknowledging and celebrating, as seen here in the imagery of this card. It’s about fulfillment and security; a solid foundation of abundance and prosperity, and the sense that you have built something you can take pride in.

Take time today to let those nearest and dearest to you know how important they are. While the Ten of Cups is also said to indicate the culmination of something, that doesn’t mean you’ve come to the end of the road. This card is all about embracing all you’ve established through your connections and interactions with those who matter most — with your family, friends and loved ones.

Ten of Cups

ARIES: Ten of Cups

This month you want to remember to count your blessings, knowing that you’ve come to a place in your life where you’re aware of what (and whom) truly matters most.

The Ten of Cups tells you that you’ve achieved something worth acknowledging and celebrating, as seen in the imagery of this card. It represents fulfillment and security; a solid foundation of abundance and prosperity, and the sense that you have built something you can take pride in.

This extends well beyond financial or material security. It’s more about family, lasting friendships and a sense of comfort — in your home and your community — surrounded by people you love.

In this version of the card, from the Morgan Greer Tarot, we see two strong arms — a man’s and a woman’s — lifting a golden chalice up in a show of harmony and unity.

A colorful rainbow pours into the chalice, while nine more cups are lined up like a staircase behind them, reminding us of the steps that have been taken to lead us to where we are today. The landscape behind them is serene and peaceful, with lush verdant hillsides and trees. Even the surface of the water is calm.

The Ten of Cups is all about embracing all you’ve established through your connections and interactions with others. It’s about happiness and security in the areas that matter most — with family, friends and loved ones.

This is not the time to think about what is lacking in your life but rather what makes it complete. And while you don’t want to be resting on your laurels, it’s important to acknowledge those who are most important to you and who keep your cup continuously full.

Ten of Chalices

Today is a good day for finding your center and allowing the Universal blessings of love, gratitude, harmony and grace to flow through you.

The Ten of Chalices — this version from the  Yoga Tarot’s — is a card of serenity, contentment and fulfillment. This ties in beautifully with today’s Venus / Jupiter conjunction which is currently prominent in the evening sky.

An evening star Venus (called Venus Hesperus in astrology) tends to express the Venusian qualities of love, beauty and emotional satiety in a more introspective and purposeful manner — much like the woman in this card.

Add Jupiter to the mix and put them both in Leo and you have a recipe for self-love and personal fulfillment which emanates from you and touches everyone you meet.

There’s a natural harmony and flow in this card, as the woman is seen levitating above a lotus blossom in a classic zen-style lotus pose.

There’s an almost perfect balance between the left and right sides of the card, which are essentially mirror images of one another. The Waves in the background come together and form an elaborate heart.

The Ten of Chalices is a card of gratitude, fulfillment and contentment. It refers to acknowledging all that you have as well as your connections with others. It’s about happiness and security in the areas that matter most — with family, friends and loved ones.

This is not the time to think about what is lacking in your life but rather what makes it complete. And while you don’t want to be resting on your laurels, it’s important to acknowledge those who are most important to you and who keep your cup continuously full.

Take time to meditate today and reflect on the blessings in your life. Like ripples in the pond this card, all that you put out there will  expand out into the Universe and be replenished over time.

“I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony” — what better song to describe a Sun / Uranus sextile combined with a Mercury / Venus sextile? And what better card to depict this energy than the gorgeous Ten of Cups from the World Spirit Tarot?

The Sun / Uranus aspect is all about expressing your unique individuality and getting along with others. It’s good for celebrating people’s differences and lifting them up rather than tearing them down.

The Mercury / Venus aspect is about communicating and harmonizing and expressing your point of a view in a loving and conciliatory manner. And yes, it’s about singing and dancing and playing — especially with these planets in whimsical Gemini and Aries.

In this version, the Ten of Cups is portrayed by one big happy family engaged in a joyful celebration. The figures in the card come from all walks of life — there are different genders, age groups, cultures, lifestyles and orientations.

They dance along a garden path, kicking up their heels (and the autumn leaves all around them) in the process. A small child plays in the background and the family dog joins in.

This card tells you that — at least for today — everything is exactly as it should be. It’s a time of honoring differences and finding ways to see one another as “family” as well as friends. Take some time today to make someone feel accepted and included, and be willing to join in and let your own hair down as well.
